Ruckus Wireless ZoneFlex 7343 Indoor 802.11g Access Point

btn_contact

Unlike any other 802.11n wireless solution in its class, the ZoneFlex 7300 combines patented adaptive antenna technology and automatic interference mitigation to deliver consistent, predictable performance at extended ranges with up to an additional 4dB of BeamFlex gain on top of the 6 dBi physical antenna gain and 10dB of interference mitigation.

The ZoneFlex 7300 delivers a 2- to 4-fold increase in signal range with lower packet error rates while reducing the number of APs required to deliver dependable Wi-Fi service.

Ruckus-Wireless-ZoneFlex-7343-Access-PointEach ZoneFlex 7300 integrates Ruckus-patented BeamFlex, a software controlled, high gain antenna array that continually forms and directs each 802.11n packet over the best performing signal path. The ZoneFlex 7300 automatically selects channels for highest throughput potential using Ruckus ChannelFly dynamic channel management, adapting to environmental changes. Once deployed, enterprises never have to worry about constant site surveys as the environment changes.

A sleek and low-profile design, the ZoneFlex 7300 was purpose-built for cost-minded enterprises requiring reliable high speed client connectivity. It is ideal for a variety of enterprise and hotspot environments including hotels, schools, retail outlets, branch offices and public venues.

Offered in single and dual band models, the ZoneFlex 7300 series can be deployed as a standalone access point or as part of the centrally-controlled Smart Wireless LAN with the Ruckus ZoneDirector. The ZoneFlex 7300 can also be easily deployed using Smart Mesh Networking to extend Wi-Fi services in locations where Ethernet cabling is not available or cost prohibitive.

Standard 802.3af power over Ethernet (PoE) leverages existing PoE switches eliminating costly and cumbersome upgrades.
